You could always substitute mayo with sour cream or greek yogurt. It won't have the same richness but sometimes I cut my coleslaw with those two things, although I do still use mayo. Hope that helps.

I've used a cilantro-lime-yogurt mix to dress cabbage slaw for tacos with much success.

From an old Junior League cookbook, I have a recipe with a dressing of 3 T vinegar, 3 T oil, 3 T sugar, 1 tsp salt, half tsp celery seed, half tsp dry mustard. Add to 4 cups shredded cabbage, 2 shredded carrots, half of a green pepper. You can also add some chopped onion and parsley. I use rice wine vinegar - it's the mildest. Kind of an old Fashioned recipe.

I asked a similar question recently and there were a couple of good possibilities suggested in response that didn't contain mayo: http://www.food52.com/hotline...

Cilantro slaw (only works if you & yours love cilantro, obviously). Shredded cabbage, chopped cilantro (lots), chopped cucumber and chopped red onion. Mix a dressing of lime juice, olive oil, garlic and S&P. Dress right before serving, and adjust seasoning to taste. My favorite on top of a fish taco, and great as a light, refreshing side to all sorts of Mexican dinners.

I would just use Greek yogurt, thinned with a little buttermilk. You could also go a completely different route and make a hot slaw with bacon, using the bacon grease as the oil component of your dressing--hot bacon fat, yellow mustard seeds, apple cider vinegar, brown sugar, salt and pepper.

The slaw in this recipe is fantastic (and it has neither mayo nor dairy)! If you have a food processor with a grating disk, you can whip this up in 3 minutes. I really, really love it! http://food52.com/recipes...

I use pickle juice with a little sugar added. It's very fresh tasting and delicious.
